WOW! Children's Museum, formally World of Wonder, is an interactive children's museum located in Lafayette, Colorado geared toward children under 12. It was founded in 1996 by Lisa and Dario Attallah and in 2004 moved to Lafayette from Louisville. A 2019 expansion allowed for the addition of an outdoor programming space. The museum schedules designated sensory friendly events for children with autism or sensory processing disorder, including a sensory room.
In 2015, it was named among the top 25 children's museums in the United States by the Early Childhood Education Zone, welcomed its millionth visitor, and was on track for its highest annual attendance.

  • It is a fun place my kids loved it. And improved their social relationship. Improved their mind! They made new friends every time they go there.

  • This place is fantastic. The staff is very nice and the facility is clean safe. Not a very big facility which is nice. 3&4 year old stayed interested for 3 and a half hours. The layout and flow of the facility help keep noise levels down even when busy which is nice especially if you are including guests with sensory issues. The “real world” exhibits they have are thoughtfully designed and easily encourage imaginative play. They offer a weekday and weekend afternoon option to visit where all guests are required to wear face masks, promoting inclusivity for the immune compromised patron.
  • Another 5 star attraction for kids, I think this is the best thing to do with your kids if you are visiting Denver. They simply loved it, there is so much to do. They had a great time and the prices were very decent, $5 for adults and $10 per kid. The variety of activities is impressive, so if you want them to spend some energy please bring them here. 5 stars, great job WOW Museum keep it up!
